The first piece of furniture we purchased 38 years ago was our triple dresser seen above and below.
That was in the days when solid wood was used, and much of the furniture sold in the USA was built in places like North and South Carolina and other states. Do you remember the "made in the USA" days? Or are you too young? (giggle)
And the 7-foot tall pine book case Jack built 25 years ago - nothing fancy, but sure does store a lot!
Jack built some 4" deep shelving units for more storage behind the entry door.
Those also had to be unscrewed from the wall and moved temporarily into the Master Bedroom.
Next came the new paint, a grey-brown river rock color which is very outdoorsy, like my garden.
After all the furniture was set up, my "super heavy duty" file cabinet was brought in (also from my Mom's old office suite). It takes up a lot of space, however, it is just the right height for a tall person such as myself. It has become my die-cutting, paper trimming, and scoring center.
